There are lots of games I'll be getting in the future (Fable 3, Rock Band 3, TFU 2, ZHP), but I'll probably just be getting Pinball FX 2 on XBLA this week.

Nothing strikes me as a must-have right now. I might just get Rock Band 3 at some point, but not this week. Despite playing and enjoying Fable 2, Fable 3 just doesn't sound interesting from the previews I've read. The Force Unleashed 2 needs to have seen some major fucking improvements from the first game for me to consider it.

Exactly how I'm feeling as well.  I'm sure I'll end up with Fable 3 someday, but I'm really in no hurry for it.

I'm looking forward to this week more than any other so far this year.  My whole family is beyond excited for a RB3 weekend.   And I just cranked through the end of Fable 2.

PS3:
The Fight: Lights Out - Waiting for reviews and my PS3 to come home from the shop

360:
Blood Drive - If it even delivers a little on its Carmaggedonesque promise, IN, but waiting for reviews
Fable 3
Rock Band 3 (with keyboard)
Star Wars The Force Unleashed II
Shaun White Skateboarding or The Sims 3 - one of these to go with the B2G1 deal at Best Buy (probably Shaun White, as it looked fun, but we'll see)

Wii:
Disney Channel All Star Party - I have to avoid letting my daughter see this - JK, it may be a Christmas present, but no one in the house will play with her

DS:
Art Academy  - for my kid, someday

Rock Band 3 with keyboard! Gamestop texted me last night and let me know my midnight pickup is ready to go. Too bad I have to work, and will instead be picking it up on my way home tomorrow.

Go! Go! Island Rescue!
Publisher: Connect2Media
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Comic Mischief, Tobacco Reference
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points

This is the worst vacation ever! The hotels are collapsing, the robot waiters are going berserk and the picturesque volcanoes are exploding. You'll be lucky to make it out alive, let alone get a suntan. It's time to scramble the Rescue Squad! Take control of a squad of brave firefighters who must save the hapless Darwins from all manner of disasters, including fire, floods and rampaging robots. To do this, you must throw the Darwins around the levels until they reach a fire exit. Luckily, some of the Darwins bounce, so don't worry too much if you drop some of them. And you can always rewind time in case of any fatal accidents. With more than 50 levels of unique, laugh-out-loud game play spread across four colorful zones, panic rooms and bonus levels, Go! Go! Island Rescue! will have you smiling for hours.

ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)

If you manage to discover the differences within the time limit, you'll be rewarded with Cups according to your performance. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold Cups to be won. The game features 160 different photos from established photographers, with more than 1,000 combinations of differences to find in the images. Choose between one-player and multiplayer modes.

Quote
Defend your base by taking control of a mini-arsenal of weapons and fighting off wave after wave of enemy attackers. Use the stylus to fire bullets and bombs at oncoming enemies.

Flashlight
Publisher: Kaasa
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: Not Rated
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
When it's dark, people need a simple source of light. Flashlight changes the dual screens of your Nintendo DSi system into a flashlight with added features. You can change the color and the intensity of the light. Use your Nintendo DSi system to read under a blanket or to get a serious source of light while taking night hikes. Flashlight could also be helpful in other situations, such as using the warning light when your car has broken down.

Holding off on Fable 3 pending impressions here, plus more time. If it's worth checking out I want to give it my full attention.

Star Wars TFU sounds good, but again waiting to see if they've improved from the first.

Nada for me this week I guess.

I'll get RB3 eventually, but I don't have the funds to go with the keyboard bundle, and I still have some LEGO goodness to complete. 

So nothing for me this week.

Fable 3 is pre-ordered and should be delivered on Tuesday, but I probably will hold off on playing it until I get through Fallout and the SP campaign for COD. And I'll eventually pick up the Rock Band 3 keyboard bundle using whatever gift cards I get from the holidays.

RB3 for sure.  I'll pass on keyboard and wait for the midi adapter.

Fable 3 - might wait a little because I'm still working on Fallout.

Force Unleashed - wait on reviews/impressions.

My 360 red ringed last Thursday, so it's out for repairs (thankfully, it's a free repair still).  So there goes the impetus to buy Fable 3 on release day.  Although, now that I think back, I've been slightly disappointed in every Fable release so far.  That may be because of all the promises that Peter gives for each version and that inevitably fail to show up in the release.

LEGO Universe!  biggrin  Actually, I already have 3 copies so I don't think I need another.

I'm still debating whether I want to pick up Fable 3 now or just put it on the Christmas list.  I'd like to play it now, and chances are that I won't even get it as a gift, but I always at least try to put some games on my list even though my family never buys them for me.

I ended up pre-ordering TFU2 on PC for $30 at Best Buy.  I figured it couldn't be that bad at half the price, could it lol?

I wasn't originally interested in Fable 3, but after reading the Fable 3 thread here and seeing that badass demo where he kills the wolves, I will probably pick it up.

I find myself disinterested in Rock Band 3 until the Squier guitar comes out, and frankly that shocks me.  If you'd told me a year ago that Rock Band 3 would garner hardly any interest from me, I'd have said you're insane.  But there you go.  The setlist alone isn't enough to get me interested, and while the keyboard might be cool I can't afford to drop $130 on it right now. 

Force Unleashed II demo was pretty good, but I'll either Goozex it or borrow it.  Fable III I'll put off until Christmas.
